A Jungle Metropolis for Your Vacation to Peru

Born from a small Jesuit mission, Iquitos’s heyday came in the 19th century as the result of a rubber boom. With
no roads leading here, it can only be reached via water or by air.

During the rubber boom, money flooded into the region, and a bevy of grand and extravagant mansions were
built, including the Gustave Eiffel-designed Casa de Fierro (The Iron House). Though the rubber barons have long
since fled, their opulent residences – so incongruous to the jungle setting – still stand. Present day Iquitos is the
port in which your Amazon River cruise begins, as the largest port city in the Amazon rainforest,
making it an excellent starting point for your vacation to Peru.

Best Time To Travel

Iquitos is a year-round destination, with two distinct seasons: high-water season and low-
water season. Therefore, when to visit is up to preference.

During the high-water season which runs from December to May, cruises are better able to adventure through hidden
lagoons meanwhile the low-water season of June to November offers greater exploration through the forest.
